With Source Naturals Melatonin Get Some Deep Sleep
Getting enough sleep, especially deep sleep, is one of the factors vital to your health. The proper amount and type of sleep affect immune functions, concentration and vitality. Understanding the stages of sleep is helpful in realizing its importance in you daily life. Sleep is divided into two main stages, with five sub-stages. The two main stages are non-rapid eye movement sleep, which comprises 75 - 80% of total sleep, and rapid eye movement (REM) sleep, or 25% of total sleep. The sub-stages are breakdowns of the two stages. If either stage is interrupted, the structure of sleep is disrupted and occasional sleeplessness can be the result. People deprived of REM sleep have been shown to have problems with memory, learning, muscle tone and mood. Lack of sleep also affects the function of neurotransmitters, brain chemicals that pass messages between neurons. Brain function can be significantly improved by the right nutrients. Melatonin is an important nutrient that can help you meet you sleep and cognition needs.
Melatonin and its Functions
Source Naturals is aware of the importance of proper rest and offers you a variety of Melatonin supplements to address occasional sleeplessness. Melatonin is an important substance for balanced sleep. It is produced in a brain structure called the pineal gland, which is responsible for the circadian rhythms of the body. The eye receives information about the light and darkness of the day and transmit this information to the brain. When the sun sets, or there is less daylight, more melatonin is secreted to biologically prepare the body for sleep. Due to stress and natural aging, the production of melatonin can drop off dramatically. Melatonin supplementation has been found to decrease the time it takes to get to sleep and increase total sleep time. Source Naturals formulations supply the necessary melatonin to assist with occasional sleeplessness.
The Benefit of Sublingual
Some nutrients may break down during liver metabolism. The sublingual form is absorbed directly into the bloodstream, via the blood vessels under the tongue, and in the cheeks, bypassing the liver and allowing for quick entry into the system.
Leaders of the Wellness Revolution
Source Naturals was created in 1982 by C.E.O Ira Goldberg to support each individual’s potential to enjoy optimal health. At that time, the kind of nutritional formulations he envisioned – for the maintenance of well-being and the enhancement of life – simply didn’t exist. The idea of combining many nutrients, herbs and nutraceuticals in one formulation, though common today, was then a rarity. Source Naturals pioneered the concept with Wellness Formula, now the industry’s #1 immune support product. Source Naturals subsequently introduced numerous award-winning formulas, recognized for their excellence in independent surveys and nutritional analyses. In addition to Wellness, these award-winners include Life Force Multiple, Mega-Kid Multiple, Inflama-Rest, the Skin Eternal line, Higher Mind, Essential Enzymes, Male Response, and more.
Source Naturals’ comprehensive Bio-Aligned Formulas help bring the power of alignment to your body. When formulating, Source Naturals evaluates the underlying causes of system imbalances, and then provides targeted nutrition to interdependent body systems. Source Naturals' line of more than 600 products also includes well-researched, single entity nutrients in their highest quality and most bioavailable forms. Source Naturals nutritional supplements are at the leading edge of today’s Wellness Revolution. This transformation in health consciousness also includes new perspectives in diet, lifestyle, emotional and spiritual development, and complementary health care. Source Naturals Strategy for Wellness is to provide education that empowers individuals to take responsibility for their health, rather than relying solely on outside medical authority. The result is people who are more productive and fulfilled, and a world that is stronger and healthier.
